When the conversation turns to real estate, the name Steve Shanks is often heard. Born and raised in Sherman Oaks, Steve has been guiding buyers and sellers in the area since 1989. His extensive knowledge of local neighborhoods and his well-known reputation both with his clients and the brokerage community make him the first person to call when seeking assistance in buying or selling real estate.Steve’s local expertise, combined with his powerful multimedia marketing strategies, seasoned negotiating skills and impeccable client service, have made him one of the market’s top producers year after year.Steve’s experienced, confident style is a calming influence for clients — no matter how challenging the process becomes. “We were recovering from a failed escrow from another agent and battling an incredibly tough market, but Steve never seemed worried,” remembers one couple. “His experience really came through during the tough negotiations, complicated disclosures, and delays with the bank.” Another seller adds, “He managed to show us that good things can still happen in a bad market. This process went so unbelievably smooth, I felt like it wasn't really happening.”A Realtor and former brokerage owner who sold a home with Steve sums it up. “I have met a lot of agents in my life,” she says. “He is one of the best.”Steve focuses on the marketing and selling of properties in Encino, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Toluca Lake and Valley Village as well as the Mulholland Corridor.
